    LOL , this has nothing to do with anything If you know the person do something about it. If not, scan your computer and check for spyware or keyloggers, who knows you may be infected.

    You should probably change all your passwords even email because someone obviously knows your email password as well to be able to change your FB.

    First you need a good protection for your pc. Use Internet Security Kasperky or other good protetction. Then, change all your passwords.

    Hey I have PM'd you, if they have access to your email they can change your password. Or if you are using a shared computer there are ways to record your keystrokes with a keylogger.

    LizzzyLizzzard is onto the right thing here.

    First of all you should secure your user account on your computer. Change your user password from the Users section of Control Panel.

    Secondly, you should disable the hidden administrator account on your computer.

    Thirdly, set your system so that all users must supply a password at startup.

    Fourthly, change the email password associated with your Facebook account and also change the password for your Facebook itself.

    Lastly, a good antivirus/antispyware program should identify a keylogger. If you have such a program already, check to see if any suspicious programs or files have been added to the ignore list for the scanner.

    In your system services, Remote Registry and Remote Desktop should also be disabled as they are a security risk.

    I would also under certain circumstances suggest changing the boot order in your BIOS so that the CD/DVD-ROM drive is booted AFTER the internal hard drive and then locking down your BIOS (hardware) settings with a password. This is only if there is a possibility that another person with direct access to your computer might be able to boot from a "live CD" to access your hard drive.

    Any questions, PM me.
